  • Renal Function and Direct Oral Anticoagulant Treatment for Venous
           Thromboembolism
    • Authors: John Fanikos; Allison E. Burnett; Charles E. Mahan; Paul P. Dobesh

      Because differences in renal function can affect the efficacy and safety of direct oral anticoagulants, prescribing an appropriate dose based on renal function is critical, especially in patient populations with a high incidence of renal impairment. In patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation and mild or moderate renal impairment, direct oral anticoagulants are associated with a better risk–benefit profile compared with warfarin. However, less is known regarding outcomes in patients with venous thromboembolism and renal impairment. The efficacy and safety of direct oral anticoagulants in patients with venous thromboembolism and renal impairment are primarily derived from prespecified subgroup analyses of the phase 3 clinical trials. We summarize the available data on direct oral anticoagulant use in patients with venous thromboembolism and renal impairment. Clinicians are encouraged to follow study inclusion/exclusion criteria and perform renal dose adjustments based on the Cockcroft–Gault equation using actual body weight when indicated to avoid adverse events.

  • Contextualizing Myocardial Infarction: Comorbidities and Priorities in
           Older Adults
    • Authors: Ashok Krishnaswami; Mathew S. Maurer; Karen P. Alexander
      Pages: 1144 - 1147
      Abstract: Publication date: October 2017
      Source:The American Journal of Medicine, Volume 130, Issue 10
      Author(s): Ashok Krishnaswami, Mathew S. Maurer, Karen P. Alexander
      Cardiovascular care for older adults has become increasingly complex owing to a rise in the concurrent comorbidity burden that accompanies senescence. Internists, hospitalists, and cardiologists often encounter geriatric patients with multiple chronic conditions needing acute cardiovascular care. Abnormal cardiac biomarker levels in patients with multiple noncardiac conditions are a common reason for older adults to enter the hospital. This type of acute coronary syndrome, defined as a non–ST segment elevation myocardial infarction or, more precisely, type 2 myocardial infarction, often leads to substantial consternation. Although guideline-based single-disease care may be appropriate in younger individuals, a more cautious approach is needed when considering optimal care strategies for older adults. We discuss a case of an older adult presenting with type 2 myocardial infarction, to highlight a modern-day approach that requires a deliberate shift from an evidence-based focus to a more value-based geriatric mindset.

      Background Most diabetes and cardiovascular studies have been conducted in white patients, with data being extrapolated to other population groups. Methods For this analysis, patient-level data were extracted from 5 randomized clinical trials in patients with acute coronary syndrome; we compared obesity levels between Asian and white populations, stratified by diabetes status. By using an adjusted Cox proportional hazards model, hazard ratios (HRs) for cardiovascular outcomes after an acute coronary syndrome were determined. Results We identified 49,224 patient records from the 5 trials, with 3176 Asians and 46,048 whites. Whites with diabetes had higher body mass index values than those without diabetes (median 29.3 vs 27.2 kg/m2; P < .0001), whereas Asians with diabetes and without diabetes had similar body mass index (24.7 vs 24.2 kg/m2). Asians with diabetes (HR, 1.63; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.32-2.02), whites with diabetes (HR, 1.15; 95% CI, 1.06-1.25), and Asians without diabetes (HR, 1.36; 95% CI, 1.14-1.64) had higher rates of the composite of death, myocardial infarction, or stroke at 30 days than whites without diabetes. Asians with diabetes (HR, 1.84; 95% CI, 1.47-2.31), whites with diabetes (HR, 1.47; 95% CI, 1.33-1.62), and Asians without diabetes (HR, 1.38; 95% CI, 1.11-1.73) had higher rates of death at 1 year compared with whites without diabetes. There were no significant interactions between race and diabetes for ischemic outcomes. Conclusions Although Asians with diabetes and acute coronary syndrome are less likely to be obese than their white counterparts, their risk for death or recurrent ischemic events was not lower.

      Background Red blood cell transfusion benefit during acute myocardial infarction remains unclear in elderly. We aimed to assess the transfusion impact on 1-year mortality in acute myocardial infarction patients ≥ 65 y, according to their age and haemoglobin nadir. Methods We included 3316 consecutive patients with acute myocardial infarction aged ≥ 65 y from the RICO survey. They were categorized according to their haemoglobin nadir (≤ 8, > 8 to ≤ 10 and > 10 g/dL) and age (< or ≥ 80 years). Results 1906 patients (57%) were 65-79 y and 1410 (43%) ≥ 80 y, of whom 103 (5%) and 145 (10%) patients received red blood cell transfusion respectively (P < 0.001). In Cox regression analysis, transfusion was associated with increased 1-year mortality for haemoglobin nadir > 10 g/dL, but no significant effect for haemoglobin nadir between 8 and 10 g/dL. When haemoglobin nadir was ≤ 8g/dL, transfusion did not influence 1-year mortality for younger patients (65-79 y). However, for older patients (≥ 80 y), transfusion was associated with lower mortality (HR = 0.43 (0.22-0.86), P = 0.016). Conclusion Among older patients with acute myocardial infarction, the effect of transfusion was largely dependent on haemoglobin threshold and age. Transfusion was associated with increased 1-year mortality when haemoglobin nadir was > 10 g/dL. However, in patients aged ≥ 80 y with haemoglobin nadir < 8 g/dL, transfusion was associated with a 50% reduction in 1-year mortality.

      Background Potassium supplementation reduces the risk of cardiovascular mortality and stroke in population studies; however, the prognostic impact of mild hypokalemia in the general population has not been thoroughly investigated. We aimed to investigate associations between mild hypokalemia and endpoints in the general population. Methods participants (48-76 year old) from the general population study “Copenhagen City Heart Study” (n=5916) were studied. Participants were divided into groups according to baseline-values of plasma-potassium (potassium); Hypokalemia (<3.7 mmol/L,n=758), normokalemia (3.7-4.5 mmol/L] n=4973, and high-potassium (>4.5 mmol/L,n=185). Hypokalemia was further divided in potassium<3.4 and 3.4-3.6 mmol/L. The primary endpoints were all-cause mortality and non-fatal validated ischemic stroke. Secondary endpoint was AMI. We adjusted for conventional risk factors, diuretics and atrial fibrillation (AF) at baseline. Results Mean potassium in the hypokalemic group was 3.5 mmol/L (range 2.6-3.6) and was associated (P<0.05) with increased systolic blood pressure, higher CHA2DS2-VASc-score, and increased use of diuretics as compared with normokalemia. Baseline AF was equally frequent across groups. Median follow-up-time was 11.9 years (Q1-Q3: 11.4-12.5 years). Hypokalemia was borderline associated with increased stroke-risk in a multivariable Cox model (including adjustment for competing risk) as compared with normokalemia (HR:1.40;95%CI:1.00-1.98). The subgroup with potassium<3.4 mmol/L had higher stroke- (HR:2.10;95%CI:1.19-3.73) and mortality-risk (HR:1.32;95%CI:1.01-1.74) as compared with normokalemia. Hypokalemia was not associated with AMI and no increased risk of mortality was seen with concomitant AMI and hypokalemia. No associations were seen with high-potassium. Conclusions In a general population mild hypokalemia is associated with increased stroke-risk and to a lesser degree increased mortality-risk.

      Background Prediabetes may be improved or reversed with lifestyle interventions. A worksite wellness program offering financial incentives for participation may be effective in improving the health of employees with prediabetes. We studied the effect of employee health plan financial incentives on health outcomes for employees with prediabetes. Methods We conducted a retrospective cohort study using electronic medical record (EMR) data from January 2008- December 2012. Our study participants were employees with prediabetes and propensity-matched non-employees with prediabetes and commercial health insurance, all receiving care within one health system. Exposures included fixed annual financial incentives for program participation and later a premium discount divided between program participation and achievement of goals. We utilized longitudinal linear mixed models to assess yearly changes in glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), weight, and low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) in employees vs. non-employees. We also compared outcomes of employees by ever- vs. never- program participant status. Results Our study population included 1005 employees and 1005 matched non-employees. The yearly reduction in HbA1c for employees vs. matched non-employees did not differ in 2008-10, but was greater in 2010-12 when incentives were tied to program participation as well as achievement of goals (- 0.10 vs. -0.08 %, respectively; p for difference in change (DIC) = 0.01 from 2010-12). Analyses from both periods showed that employees lost more weight per year than matched non-employees (-1.85 vs. –0.21 lbs. from 2008-10; p for DIC<0.001 and -2.35 vs. -0.65 lbs. from 2010-12; p for DIC <0.001). Employees who participated in disease management lost more weight than those who did not (-2.14 vs. 0.79 lbs. yearly prior to 2010 and -2.82 vs. -0.91 after 1/1/2010, p for DIC <0.01 and <0.001 respectively). Conclusion A worksite wellness program offering health plan financial incentives for participation and outcomes was associated with improvements in weight and HbA1c.

      Background Many individuals with diabetes remain undiagnosed, leading to delays in treatment and higher risk for subsequent diabetes complications. Despite recommendations for diabetes screening in high risk groups, the optimal approach is not known. We evaluated the utility of inpatient glucose levels as an opportunistic screening tool for identifying patients at high risk for diabetes. Methods We retrospectively examined 462,421 patients in the national VA healthcare system, hospitalized on medical/surgical services in 2000-2010, for ≥3 days, with ≥2 inpatient random plasma glucose (RPG) measurements. All had continuity of care – ≥1 primary care visit and ≥1 glucose measure within 2 years before hospitalization and yearly for ≥3 years after discharge. Glucose levels during hospitalization and incidence of diabetes within 3 years after discharge in patients without diabetes were evaluated. Results Patients had mean age 65.0 years, BMI 29.9, and were 96% male, 71% white, and 18% black. Preexisting diabetes was present in 39.4%, 1.3% were diagnosed during hospitalization, 8.1% diagnosed <5 years post-discharge, and 51.3% never diagnosed (NonDM). The NonDM group had the lowest mean hospital RPG (112 mg/dl [6.2 mmol/L]). Having at least two RPGs >140 mg/dl (>7.8 mmol/L), the 95th percentile of NonDM hospital glucose, provided 81% specificity for identifying incident diabetes <3 years post-discharge. Conclusions Screening for diabetes could be considered in patients with at least two hospital glucoses at/above the 95th percentile of the nondiabetic range (141 mg/dl [7.8 mmol/L]).

      Background The independent association of recent infection with venous thromboembolism is uncertain. The purpose of the study was to test both overall infection (site unspecified) and specific infection sites as potential risk factors for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism adjusting for other known venous thromboembolism factors. Methods Using Rochester Epidemiology Project (REP) resources, we identified all Olmsted County, MN residents with objectively-diagnosed incident deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism over the 13-year period, 1988-2000 (cases; n=1303), and 1-2 residents without venous thromboembolism matched to each case on age, sex and incident venous thromboembolism date (controls; n=1494). These case-control sets were analyzed using conditional logistic regression. Data were collected on recent infection and infection site(s), body mass index, smoking, current or recent hospitalization with and without surgery, nursing home confinement, active cancer, trauma or fracture, leg paresis, prior superficial vein thrombosis, transvenous catheter/pacemaker, ischemic heart disease, congestive heart failure, chronic lung or renal disease, serious liver disease, asthma, diabetes mellitus, hormone therapy, and among women, hormonal contraception and pregnancy/post-partum. Results Five hundred thirteen (39.4%) cases and 189 (12.7%) controls had an infection in the previous 92 days (OR=4.5; 95%CI: 3.6, 5.5; p<0.0001). In a multivariable analysis adjusting for common venous thromboembolism risk factors, pneumonia as well as symptomatic urinary tract, oral, intra-abdominal and systemic blood stream infections were associated with significantly increased odds of venous thromboembolism. Conclusion Infection as a whole, as well as specific infection sites in particular are independent risk factors for venous thromboembolism and should be considered as potential indications for venous thromboembolism prophylaxis.

      Without proper care, patients with severe forms of asthma face substantial medical risks, marked reductions in quality of life, and other significant disease-related burdens. Therefore, it is essential that primary care clinicians and other healthcare providers are adept at identifying cases of severe asthma based on symptom control, exacerbation risks, and the need for relatively aggressive treatment regimens (eg, high-dose inhaled corticosteroids with long-acting controller medications, and/or frequent oral corticosteroid use). Engaging and educating affected individuals as part of ongoing treatment planning are best achieved with a good understanding of patients' own insights into their disease and management challenges that often arise in busy healthcare practices. This includes effectively communicating with patients about the implications of their diagnosis and potential treatment strategies that can be accessed via coordinated multidisciplinary care. Expert primary care and specialist faculty have highlighted strategies to identify cases of severe asthma, appropriate referral pathways for these individuals, and considerations on integrating patients' perspectives into clinical decision making across the continuum of care (access to an accredited educational program on these topics is available at http://courses.elseviercme.com/pcp/687). Additionally, this online program is a component of a larger platform of education activities and consolidated clinical resources designed to improve the care of patients with respiratory disorders (visit http://respiratorycme.elsevierresource.com/).
